Educational Philosophy: The Criminal Justice Department wants students to have a meaningful and memorable practical experience, which supplements classroom learning experiences. The Department expects students to keep a journal of their work activities and to analyze the experiences in the context of classroom learning. Hopefully, internships will lead students into the areas explored or at least be a worthwhile experience in a complementary career path.
